I think that we should add a chat section to the website what do you think?
I put a message up on Jordan’s wall about this JUST yesterday! So yeah, I think it should happen but I’m only worried that it will open doors to people who don’t have a long enough attention span to talk maturely and that people may impulsively say offensive things and not be able to take them back. Anything that is more likely to prevent such a thing, maybe something like webcam/mic chat, would be totally fine by me.
Yeah. Definitely need moderators. I hadn’t thought of that because all the forums and chats I’ve been on haven’t really moderated to where I felt everything was actually under control.
So far, HE doesn’t need that so much I am just a bit worried about our future.
@ Syn. Ther. When some troll asshole comes in and starts trolling on HE, I’m going to volunteer to kick its ass out. Trolls are everywhere, even in places like these. Even I am being arguably abrasive towards you. So far only people who are mature and open minded choose to communicate on here. If we keep our standards high, then maybe we won’t need moderators to moderate for us.
However, there are people out there who will see this and uncontrollably desecrate HE, though. I’ve felt like mercilessly offending a few people on here because I initially disagreed with them a few times. I am not terribly far from choosing the more impulsive path, myself. So for me, because sometimes I know not what I speak, choose to have some responsible people moderate if we have a faster paced way of communicating.
If you do not give troll what they want… attention they will not be here…
Really it is an upside down world if we start to implement old world structures in a new world order… ;) LOL
And be abrasive, it is your bliss ;) I just like to believe in common sense and good will.
Innocent till proven guilty, … would be a cool experiment BTW.
That’s kind of harsh. There should be chances because I KNOW at some point I’m going to get pissed at someone for whatever reason even though I don’t want to and I control it pretty well. Usually I say sorry when that happens…unless I can’t get past their assholishness and that takes a lot.
and @ Syn. Ther. You have a point, there are other ways to combat trolls. And you’re right, we should try to think of new ways to function, the old world should stay the old world. This site is about being inventive in addition to being exploratory and positive and a million other cool things.
But everybody has a right to be angry, and sometimes it is justified, there is nothing wrong with a heated debate or argument. As long as it is not a personal thing. Which I believe will not happen amongst truly open minded people.
And there is nothing wrong with saying sorry, but only when you mean it.
otherwise it bullshit.
and even so, it is impossible to have a positive connection with the entire world, some people just think different, that does not necessarily make them wrong, or less of a person.
But that is my 2 cnts.
I’ve got the chat code, I just need some time to style it all nice for you guys. Shouldn’t be too hard. I’ll be in Miami for the next 6 days but I will get to it when I get back.
As for trolls, we haven’t had any trouble so far! (Knock on wood). Of course I can ban anyone that starts trouble. When the chat tool is introduced, I will also establish a place for people to report any troll behavior.
The nature of HighExistence is such that I doubt Trolling will ever be a problem. Even if some ass does get on here and tries to mess with members, we can just show him love instead of frustration :) What’s a troll to do when no one gets annoyed?
